You can use your leadership skills to mentor other teachers, lead curriculum design teams or pursue leadership options as a principal or inspector, subject advisor or regional director. Teachers can also use their leadership talents to advocate for others through involvement in the teachers' union, professional associations and community organizations.
If these options aren't enough, you should know that the skills of a teacher are transferable to other professions. Government and business-and-industry employers like to hire teachers because of their abilities to work and communicate effectively with people. This - added to their ability to plan, organize and inspire - makes teachers very attractive as employees. While we never like to lose great teachers from the classroom, it is always nice to know that when you choose a particular career path you will have a wide range of options.
